Chad Smith, the drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, didn’t care about how the audience would react on Sunday night.
Playing a show at the Schottenstein Center on Ohio State’s campus, Smith did not shy away from his love of Michigan. At one point in the show, Smith took the mic and sang part of the Michigan fight song.
Naturally, it was not received well in Columbus.

Smith was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. and has expressed his love of the Wolverines before.

The Chili Peppers had a Feb. 2 show in Detroit. We’re sure the Michigan fandom would’ve gone over better there.
